Burnt Ends

By around 8 plus, we headed over to Burnt Ends...

Burnt ends had a small seating capacity. Most of the seats were counter seats facing the area where the chefs worked their magic with a few tables in the end. 

The counter seats were great though! Seeing the chefs prepare the food was like a very enjoyable show. Given that was our first visit, we both were like oooo... Ahhhhh... Haha! 

Also, right as we entered, the aroma of the barbecued food just got us more hungry than ever.

Servers were also very polite and very attentive!

Pricing wise, it was really steep. One quail egg is $15! One finger size portion of fish and chips was $25 - which by the time we decided to order was already not available. Haha

But food was amazing!! Seriously amazing!! 

The first that was served was the quail egg...

So fine!!! With caviar on the top and the egg was molten (is that how u describe it?)

I Jin sacrifice ok! I would have wanted to pop the whole thing in my mouth but I only ate half to show u how good it is. Wah must be quite a skill to determine how to ensure a small quail egg size can be molten!

And there was the beef marmalade...

The beef marmalade serving portion is in 2 like above. It is beef with some sweet jam like sauce and onion on bread with some pickles on the top and some mayo like sauce. It tastes great especially when u take a whole bite incorporating the bread and the meat! Very good! And this was $14 which in terms of pricing feels more wu Hua than the quail egg so o guess a lot of effort and precision must be put into the quail egg!

Next up was the crackling and mustard ($6)...

Which was crackling pork skin and it was so good! I tried it first and dar dar could hear the sound of me biting through the crackling piece! 

Also for some carb, we thought we would order a burger to share to keep us filled. So we had their Sanger pulled pork sour dough burger ($20)....

This was ordered with the mentality to fill our tummy (Coz the steak was our star) but it was soooooo damn good!

There was cheese between the bread and the pork. The cheese was slightly charred and just taste so good from the toast. The pulled pork was so tasty and the whole combination was so divine! We loved this!

And last but not least, our steak! We ordered a mayura cube roll ($60 per 100 gram), subjected to a minimum of 215grams. Ours was 235 grams and that cost us $141. Before they process it, the chef will cut and show you the size for approval before continuing. 

And here was the steak...

It was so good! So tender! And just the way we both like it! We discussed about it and we don't really fancy steak with sauces and all. It simply masks the taste of the steak. A good steak for us should be done with just salt and pepper to be able to enjoy the beefy taste of the steak!

We thoroughly enjoyed the meal and look forward to be back again soon!

Oh also, noted that even as we left around 10ish, the place was still buzzing with people. They seem to operate till late!

Thank u Dar dar for the birthday meal! Importantly for the catch up!
